    it has been making odd random wurring noises every now and then....

    whenever i started it up it would squeel and make me cringe....i knew there was something going on, but i decided to pretend everything was okay.


    then today, i was in the middle of a hectic poker tournament, everything was jolly, excpet for one thing, it was suspiciously quiet. a couple minutes after i had that very though, the computer surged once, rebooted, then immediatly surged again and did not turn back on. i went and got my tools and pulled the computer out.... smelt like burning.

    after cleaning it out and not finding any burn spots, i decided to turn it back on and see if i could understand what was going on, hoping to see that it was just a malfunctioning fan.

    but alas, it wont turn on....... :wtc:



    hopefully its just my power supply? :ugh2:

    Either your PS went or the fan for the processor crapped out and the CPU burned out. Hopefully its not the later. See if you can borrow someones PSU and test it on your system. If that doesn't work, your out of luck and need to buy a new CPU (unless something else is wrong other then the CPU.)

    Check the mobo and power wires to the mobo, see if they are burnt or smell burnt if not, a new psu could fix it if your lucky

    What made the sound? squeeking, scratching could be the HD. Does it boot at all anymore, or does it just not do anything? If it boots but wont do anything its probly not the PSU. If it wont boot at all it could very well be PSU blew or something in the mobo finally went bad.
     
  7. A squeal like a pig being fucked is the sound of a hard drive dying, or a pig being fucked.
